Kitty Caddy Clutch

The Fat Quarter Shop is presenting another fun project. It is the Kitty Caddy Clutch. If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen some of these pictures before. The pattern is by Stacy Iest Hsu and can be found here. The pattern includes both a kitty and a puppy version, but I stayed with the kitty version. Little Missy is definitely a cat person.

First, I chose fabric with a kitty theme. I found this bundle at FQS.
Very cute 30's style fabrics. I would have preferred to use Woof, Woof, Meow, but it wasn't available when I was working on the project.

Stacy's pattern was easy to follow.

Here is the interior panel. I haven't put in a zipper in years. I quit making clothes years ago. Following the pattern instructions made it a breeze.

Here is the exterior panel. The pattern called for embroidery of the face. I was lazy and used my Pentel Gel Pen instead. I used a Pigma Pen in red to lightly color in the nose. It is a little more red than I had intended.

The two panels are put together with binding. No turning inside out is required. The cute mouse pincushion is attached by its tail when sewing the binding.

If I had thought more carefully when cutting my fabric, I would have chosen to have the green kitty themed fabric on the outside. Oh well. The purple is cute. 

Cute little mousey. I didn't find the video until after I had finished the mouse. Find it here.

Thanks to the Fat Quarter Shop for presenting another fun project. 

Thanks for stopping by.
